4 To Score: Pick Leicester, Brentford, Bradford and Swindon

Our writers tip which teams are likely to score first in the Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two in this weekend's Saturday 3pm games.

4 To Score is Betway’s free-to-play prediction game, where you can win £25,000 by simply guessing the first team to score in the top four divisions across Saturday’s three o’clock kick-offs.


Top pick: Leicester

Leicester are three-time 4 To Score winners this season, and have scored the earliest goal in the Premier League in each of the past two weeks.

The Foxes have notched seven goals inside 15 minutes this term – the most in the league – and proved they can break the deadlock against top sides by scoring first against both Liverpool and Manchester United last month.

Honourable mention: Crystal Palace

Palace have been prolific at home under Roy Hodgson.

They have scored at least twice in seven of their last eight games at Selhurst Park, with Manchester City the only side to keep them out.

The Eagles are a good bet to score early against a Burnley side that have let in six in their last two games.

– Jack Green


Top pick: Brentford

Brentford have scored at least twice in five of their last seven home matches, netting inside the first 25 minutes in four of them.

They host Bolton, who have the third-worst defensive away record in the league.

Honourable mentions: Fulham, Derby

No team this season has conceded 4TS-winning goals more often than Middlesbrough, so they are vulnerable to high-scoring Fulham.

Derby have scored the earliest goal in three separate away matches this campaign, so have a good chance when they visit Birmingham.

– Adam Drury


Top pick: Bradford

Bradford have scored more first-half goals than any other team in League One, and have taken the lead inside eight minutes in two of their last three games at Valley Parade.

They’re a solid shout to make another fast start against a Northampton team that have conceded the division’s earliest goal three times in the last eight rounds of matches.

Honourable mentions: Rotherham, Charlton

Rotherham have scored three times in the opening 10 minutes of their last two away games, so keep an eye on them at Oldham, who have conceded the most goals of any team in the division during that period.

Charlton aren’t in great form, but Bury have shipped five goals in the first 15 minutes of a seven-game losing streak in all competitions.

– Tom Clee


Top pick: Swindon

Three of the last four 4 To Score winners in League Two have come from matches between sides 10th and below.

Tenth-placed Swindon take on third-bottom Forest Green, who conceded after three minutes in the EFL Trophy in midweek and after eight minutes against Lincoln late last month.

Mark Cooper’s side are also the slowest starts in League Two, having shipped 10 goals in the opening 20 minutes of matches.

Honourable mentions: Luton, Carlisle

Luton are probably the most predictable pick in all of the top four divisions, but it’s hard to argue with 62 goals after 26 matches.

Carlisle are at home to Crewe, who have conceded the first goal of the day on six separate occasions so far this season.
